When our client contacted us following a referral from her Property Manager, she had already begun the early stages of transforming this stunning, three-story, waterfront mansion in Palmetto Bluff's Wilson Village. We wish we could take credit for the gorgeous bathroom designs, but those were already in place! However, there were still so many ways that we improved this gorgeous home to prepare it for the luxury rental market.

We started with a fresh light palette on the walls, then transformed the kitchen with some minor updates that had a BIG impact. We removed the existing backsplash and replaced it with a simple white subway tile, with a herringbone inlay over the stove. The kitchen island was also repainted in a light gray aqua tone to brighten up the space, and wow—what a difference!

Two new sofas, an oversized cocktail table, a rug, pillows, and fresh accessories were installed in the living room. The sunroom was updated with a new conversational grouping featuring four slipcovered chairs positioned around a round cocktail table with a woven sisal rug. On the second floor we added lots of new accessories, lighting, and decor to pull the space together. Standout details include the Gullah-inspired baskets over the queen bed, and the gorgeous accessories we used to style the navy bookcases.

The third floor underwent the biggest change. We added a bunk room to a former attic space, and as a result added sleeping room for an additional 4-6 people. We then transformed the bonus room area with a fun, graphic, black and white theme that is both kid-friendly and versatile. Practical details include a console table with drop leaves, which can join up with the black wall-mounted folding chairs for a game night or morning snack. Comfy striped bean bag chairs make gaming time more cozy!

Overall, the space now feels cohesive, bright, beautiful, and organized. It is also distinctively representative of the Lowcountry thanks to the incorporation of casual fabrics, coastal accessories, and a palette of blues, greens, grays, and white. As this was an investment property, we worked with a tight budget. By keeping what worked, and frugally replacing items that didn't, we made affordable and smart design choices that had a huge impact. How could we improve your space? Call us today to find out!
